It’s back-to-school time!
While some moms are celebrating and some kids are crying about the end of summer, a back to school list is inevitable! If you’re like me, you’re wondering what my kids need for back to school? Really need? Having a back to school supply list makes it easier when shopping.
Here are the best back-to-school items:
Ah yes, shopping for school supplies like binders, pencil cases and notebooks are always fun. Hilroy supplies are my favourite – they’re colourful and cool. They are always my back to school essentials!
For the older kids, locker accessories are a must – and not just a mirror! Love The Kit by Dudley. Available at Staples.
There are so many options for lunch boxes out there, especially since many school are litter-less. This Original Goodbyn™ Lunchbox in Green Apple is adorable. Fenigo.com. $29.97.
Running shoes (indoor and outdoor):
Kids will need a clean pair of indoor shoes; velcro will come in handy for younger kids while older kids can enjoy runners like these cool and comfortable Reebok RealFlex and ZigTech footwear, which are lighter and sleeker offering great cushioning. Available at Reebok stores, Foot Locker, Sport Chek. $64.99 and up.
You don’t want your child to lose their stuff so label them! Mabel’s Labels have always been my favourite and now they are selling these fabulous Write Away labels that come in handy
A good sturdy backpack with plenty of space is essential for your kids. The licensed/character backpacks are cute when kids are really young but they don’t seem to last very long. These backpacks from Roots and Dudley are sure to last!
